strength our nation's democracy, that would make it easier for congress men and women to take courageous stands from time to time, and that would inspire more americans to stay engaged on an ongoing basis. i want to say just one last thing, and i don't know that i even would have thought about it, except john mentioned it earlier. when we held a conference last summer, i think to a person, and many, manyarticipants said that the very most inspiring moments of that conference were listening to our colleagues from india,inland, estonia, i don't even remember all where, talking about the level of commitment, the level of intent, and the level of progress being made around the world about evolving the structures of democracy. i think where we're caught pretty natural, just think about as yourself as a human being. you know, when you're really, really good at something, you get a little arrogant about it.
